The objective was to characterize the current dairy cattle production of Presidente Figueiredo-AM. In the period from 2017 to 2018, 11 active dairy farms were visited. 57.4% of the producers stated that they only performed one milking daily, justifying this practice due to the low productivity of the animals, on average 40 liters / day. 81.82% of the interviewees know the IFAM, however, all the interviewees havenot yet participated in any action promoted by the institute. Dairy farming in Presidente Figueiredo is characterized by low production and low technology. Most of the producers are new to the activity and require technical instruction to improve sanitary, reproductive, nutritional and milking management to leverage better dairy production results.
